Daymond John started with $40 worth of fabric that he turned into hats. He added a whole lot of hustle, a slew of mistakes, grit, and determination, and he turned two twenties into a $6 billion urban street-wear brand, FUBU, and a position as an investor on the hit ABC show "Shark Tank."
Along the way, John also lost a lot. He was rejected a lot. He spent a lot of time at the bottom of the barrel looking up, hoping to find a way out, wondering what should be his next step.
To succeed, John channeled what he now calls "the power of broke." He's written a book with that title and today he preaches that fortitude is born when you're forced up against the wall.
